A New Post-Truth World?

A New Post-Truth World?

Recent political developments have left commentators and analysts proclaiming that truth and facts no longer hold the importance they once had. Examples such as the Brexit phenomenon and outcome of the US Presidential Elections purportedly demonstrate that we’ve arrived at a new political climate defined by post-truth, where emotions and fear override objective facts. Oxford Dictionaries named “post-truth” as Word of the Year 2016 in response to the spike in usage of the word over the past year. Have we really arrived at a post-truth world? How did we get here, and what does this mean for the future of how we communicate? We discuss these questions with Zaharom Nain, Professor of Media and Communication Studies at the University of Nottingham Malaysia campus, as well as Michael P. Lynch, author and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut.
